80s Child star dead



I read this morning that Corey Haim was found dead in his home from an apparent drug overdose. 

He was an actor in quite a few of my favorite films of the 80's including Dream a Little Dream, Lucas, Silver Bullet and The Lost Boys.


I think I'll always remember him screaming at his brother that he was a creature of the night (in The Lost Boys). Corey was a teenager around the same time I was and I guess I just connected with him somehow. He was 38. He will be missed.

My fav scene in that movie is when he is in the bathtub singing. "I ain't got a song, I ain't got a dance." He was so cute back then.

I heard this this morning and then I couldn't remember WHICH Corey he was. Isn't that awful? It's sad, anyway, child stars just seem to always end badly.

So sad.

Lost Boys was good, but a little creepy.

I don't remember him, probably a bit to young. {*grin*} I remember the name.

It is always so sad when anyone dies to early.

Hi Kathy, You have many wonderful blogs and it's hard for me to choose which one to read. Anyhow, I don't know this actor or the movies he did. Yes, I live in the US. That's sad that these stars always end up dieing because of drugs.
